Po Lin Monastery invites you to ride the Ngong Ping cable car up to pay homage to the Tian Tan Big Buddha. Ngong Ping is a plateau in the west of Lantau Island, Hong Kong, characterized by high hills. People often go up to worship the Tian Tan Big Buddha by traveling by cable car.
How to get there Take the MTR Orange Line to Tung Chung Station Exit B. You will see City Gate Outlet. Walk to the left. Walk a little further and see the Ngong Ping cable car boarding point.
To get to Ngong Ping from the City Gate outlet area, take bus number 23 or the Ngong Ping 360 cable car. If going straight to the closed for renovation can travel by bus instead.
Ngong Ping cable car There will be many options.
- Solid floor. If people are afraid of heights, it is recommended to choose a solid floor.
- Clear floor. If anyone is okay, I recommend clear floor or 360 degree clear floor.
- 360-degree transparency. This time, I chose 360-degree transparent powder. It is the newest type, just launched in 2023. The view is stunning—book tickets for the Ngong Ping cable car.
What is Ngong Ping Village?
When going to the top, there will be Ngong Ping Village, located next to the bus station. The cable car Ngong Ping 360 is a village with an area of over 15,000 square meters designed with traditional Chinese architecture that reflects the local culture.
The village consists of shops, restaurants, and places for relaxation. And for entertainment, such as walking with the Buddha, monkey story theater, Chanong Ping House, etc.
Keep walking until you see an important temple on Lantau Island, the Big Buddha of Ngong Ping, at Po Lin Monastery.
To pay respect to the Tian Tan Buddha, we climb up 272 steps. The Tian Tan Buddha is the giant Buddha statue in the world, standing 34 meters tall.
